We play the Midsummer Festival every second year.  We last played there in June,  2018.  It is held at the Scandinavian Centre in Burnaby on or around the longest day of the year.  

It is a highlight and one of our favorite concerts.  There is always so much to see and do at the Festival.

Showboat


Showboat is a new tradition for us.  We first played there in June of 2016 and have been back every year since.  

Here we play to those in the stands, all those in the park, all those in the pool....and to all those wandering by who ring the top of the amphitheater.

Green mountains, blue water, red sunset and fine music.  A great way to spend a Summer evening.
